ARC Review: Cruising by Cate Ashwood

From The Blurb:
Best friends Dylan and Jake have been inseparable since college, but Dylan has one secret he can’t bring himself to share with Jake—he’s completely, utterly in love with him.  
Jake’s friendship is the most important thing in the world to Dylan, so as much as it hurts to see him with other people, Dylan keeps his mouth shut about his true feelings. When Jake wins a cruise to Alaska, he asks Dylan to go along, but what Dylan doesn’t know, is that there’s more on offer than a dream vacation. 
Can Dylan and Jake sail off to their happily ever after, or are they cruising toward disaster? 

Karen's rating:

Ok so this is new to me but apparently I love stories that are set on cruise ships because I seem to have a hard time saying no to them and in this case I didn't even try.

So we've got a cruise ship heading for Alaska, best friend's Dylan and Jake...inseparable since college. Each having a secret...basically the same secret and boys and girls this is all wrapped up in that pretty ribbon marked 'FREE'.

So in summary a friends to lovers story set on a cruise ship heading for Alaska and if you're a fan of Cate Ashwood you can grab a free copy of this to read and if you just haven't gotten around to reading this author...what are you waiting for this is the perfect time to check out a new author.

This was actually my second time with a story by this author and while the first time didn't go so well...this time was much more enjoyable. 'Cruising' is a short, sweet friends to lovers story without an real angst or over the top drama.

Dylan and Jake have been close friends since college and are nearly inseparable. Dylan and Jake head over heels in love with each other, but neither man is quite certain how to tell the other so when Jake unexpectedly 'wins' an Alaskan cruise he sees it as his chance to put his feelings out there and hopefully move their friendship in a more intimate direction.

At less than 50 pages this is a short read but it's also a cute, sweet story. I found myself easily becoming enamored with both Dylan and Jake as they stumbled through their awkward efforts to put their feelings out there and still keep their friendship intact. I enjoyed this one and while the story felt complete I'd happily read more about these two men as they settle into a life together  because in case I forgot the mention's a good thing these guys are surrounded by water because they're pretty hot together.

If you're looking to check out a new author or just wanting to read a short, cute story I definitely recommend this one. Like I said it's short, cute and free and if you need a break from the holiday stories.
